I don't know which one is worse, what actually happened with the car or BMW's response to that. One doesn't need to be a rocket scientist to understand that the stock charge pipe is a pos, an embarrassment to keep it there for an M car or in any car. Then, they go further and use this as an excuse to deny the claim!
Soon, I will take my car for a shop to install ER charge pipe. I think I am gonna make a video inwhich I will clearly count bolts and stuff, coming in and out one by one; just in case!
Really sorry Dan, hope you cure the car in no time.
